Cost & Duration

Therapy is NOT a cheap service, but fortunately, if you are on a medical aid, you should have funds available for therapy. You may even be eligible to qualify for mental health cover on a basic hospital plan.

Let Psych Central do an assessment to see if you qualify. We'll also write a letter of recommendation, and submit the application on your behalf.
